Scouting Report

AssetsOwns a great fastball that can reach the mid-to-late 90's with relative ease, and he generally does a nice job of keeping it down in the strike zone. Can be overpoweing and dominant.
FlawsAs a starter, he struggled to find consistency with his secondary pitches, since his slider isn't great and he doesn't seem to trust his changeup. Must become more consistent, in general.
Career potentialPower left-hander with a little upside.
